PPTP Clients not getting a usable IP address
« on: December 11, 2008, 02:12:00 am »

My setup is as follows:

cable internet connection (dynamic IP) >> router( >> pfsense WAN interface ( >> pfsense LAN interface

Im trying to connect a computer from the network via PPTP into the network. I can dial in using the IP but when connected it gives me the network address of the remote address range e.g. The remote address range that I have setup is and when I connect my VPN connection the pfsense server assigns as the VPN connections IP address which isn't allowing me to communicate with the network.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.



Below is my iBooks network configuration:

pablo-gonzalezs-ibook-g4:~ pablogonzalez$ ifconfig
       inet6 fe80::214:51ff:fe79:98%en1 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x5
       inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
       ether 00:14:51:79:00:98
       media: autoselect status: active
       supported media: autoselect

ppp0: flags=8051<UP,POINTOPOINT,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1444
       inet --> netmask 0xffff0000
